Is fostering for you?

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 12:52 PM Comments comments (545)
We can't say enough good things about people who open their hearts and homes to foster dogs and cats awaiting forever homes. Consider joining these special people by offering to foster pets for a local animal welfare group. It's a rewarding and much needed service.
Why should I foster a dog?
Fostering a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you’re:
  • freeing up a spot so the shelter or rescue can take in aWhat does fostering a dog involve?
    When you foster, you agree to take a homeless dog into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the dog is adopted.
    Why do adoption groups need foster homes?
    There are many reasons a dog might need foster care. Some of the most common include:
    • A rescue group doesn’t have a physical shelter and depends on foster homes to care for dogs until suitable homes are found.
    • A puppy is too young to be adopted and needs a safe place to stay until he or she is old enough to go to a forever home.
    • A dog is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.
    • A dog is showing signs of stress such as pacing or hiding in the shelter.
    • A dog has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.
    • The shelter is running out of room for adoptable dogs.nother dog.
  • giving your foster dog the time he needs to be ready for adoption.
  • helping the shelter or rescue learn more about the dog so he can end up in the best home possible.
  • socializing the dog to a home environment and possibly getting him used to being around other pets and different types of people.
Not sure you can foster a dog? We know eight reasons you can, even if you think you can’t.
How do I sign up to foster a dog?
Find a rescue group or shelter near you and contact them. They’ll likely have you fill out a foster application and, if you are approved, they will work with you to figure out the right foster dog for your household.

Summer tips for colonies/outdoor cats

Posted on July 14, 2014 at 12:20 PM Comments comments (456)
Subject: Summer Weather Tips - Alley Cat Allies
Alley Cat Allies' Summer Weather Tips
Warmer weather means special considerations for feral cat colony care. Here are some tips to keep your feline friends cool and eating right.
Food Tips
When feeding feral cats in the summer, bugs can certainly pose a problem. Make sure you continue to follow the 30-minute “rule” for removing uneaten food. (Some cats may be slow to arrive at their meal so you may want to wait 45 or 60 minutes.) Also, maintain clean and neat feeding locations, and keep the food dishes in one place to facilitate cleanup by using a feeding station. Read Alley Cat Allies' plans for building one.
In addition to raising the food off the ground, other ways to deter insects from the cats’ food include:
  • Surrounding the food bowl with a ring of baking soda.
  • Placing a tray or flowerpot tray with about half an inch to an inch of water in it on the feeding station platform and then placing the food bowl on the tray.
  • Cutting back, or completely cutting out, the amount of wet food that you feed, because dry food tends to attract fewer bugs. Be sure to add more dry food to compensate.
  • Elevating feeding stations slightly off the ground and surrounding them with a line offood-grade diatomaceous earthwithout chemical additives (available from some natural food stores and environmentally conscious pet-care supply companies).The diatom dust should be reapplied after rainstorms. Note that diatomaceous earth sold for swimming pool filters is not safe to use for this purpose.
  • PurchasingAlley Cat Allies’ recommended ant-proof bowls, available online.
  • Deter slugs and snails by creating a barrier around food dishes or feeding stations with copper tape. Copper tape can be found at most hardware and gardening stores, or online. It doesn’t kill slugs or snails, but its natural electric charge deters them.
  • Even if you’re not having bug problems with wet food, you could be having another issue—wet food can dry out fast in the heat. To counteract this, add water. It has the added benefit of providing extra hydration for the cats.
    This is a time of year to take the cats’ water needs seriously. Consider putting out extra sources of water during the summer months, and placing them in areas that will remain cool throughout the day. Water evaporates quickly in the summer heat, so keep bowls out of the sun. A feeding station (see above) can help provide shade. A bowl with less surface area will reduce the evaporation rate as well, so use a bowl that is narrow, but deep.
    Trapping Conditions
    If you are performing Trap-Neuter-Return during the summer months, make sure to take into account the extreme heat and how it affects the cats’ safety. It is possible for a cat to die from heat stroke when confined in a trap for too long. A simple guideline: if it is too hot outside for you, it is too hot for the cats. Make sure the cats don’t remain in their traps for long by making your neuter appointments for directly after your trapping. Also, don’t place traps on surfaces that can get extremely warm from the sun, such as asphalt. The metal trap can absorb the asphalt’s heat and burn the cats’ paws.

LA ( New Orleans ) New Organization Supporting Research for Cures for Feline Diseases
This event passed but check out this web site re: organization founded by Dr. Karen Miller of the Cat Hospital
Foundation for Future Feline Health
We are a nonprofit foundation devoted to supporting research to cure feline diseases through art and jewelry sales.
Our Story
Dr. Karen Miller Becnel has been providing exemplary veterinary treatment for our feline friends for over forty years. At the 2010 Conference of the American Association of Feline Practitioners, held in New Orleans , Dr. Miller Becnel organized a group of artists to sell their artwork with the profits being donated to feline research. It was so successful that she was asked by AAFP to continue these efforts in the subsequent conferences in Boston and Seattle . She went on to establish Art for Cats' Sake, Inc. as a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation to continue this good work.

ALERT) Posted by Simone Jacob Lewis
Please tell everyone not to buy this product. I bought them at TJ Maxx and they fell apart into hard, plastic pieces. They lodged into all three of my dogs airways forcing me to seek emergency veterinary care. They are now on steroids and antibiotics due to the damage to their airways. I contacted the company but I don't want any other animals to get injured

There are many ways to answer that question.

A day is 24 hours. A day is how we measure how much time we spend at work. A day can be something we look forward to, a celebration of some kind.
To most people, June 11 is Just One Day. But, June 11 is a day that will change everything for about 10,000 companion animals, and a day that can change the world. On June 11, 2013, we can be a No Kill nation.

We are Joining forces with shelters across the USA to take a pledge not to kill any savable animals on June 11, 2014. For Just One Day, "Euthanasia Technicians" will put down their syringes and pick up cameras. They will photograph them and post them on the Internet, on Facebook, on twitter. On June 11, 2014, We will market our animals to the public, We will reach out further to rescue groups, We will host adoption events with discounted rates of $30. We are extending our adoption hours till 7:00 pm and ask our community to help us empty the shelter.
Let's make June 11th a day to remember by working together. If you haven't liked our facebook page please do here and give us a thumbs up. Also find us on twitter @ . We will need your help on June the 11th to ensure success.
We will be broadcasting the success of Just One Day Initiative all day long Wednesday June 11th so please keep an eye out and help us share in our success.
